I’ve never owned an apple watch (mine’s coming today) so this is probably a dumb question but, has anyone tried to polish the case of a silver aluminum AW to make it more shiny and how did it come out?

But, why would you? Unless you were trying to remove a scratch (Which if the aluminum Scratches, its permanent), I’m not sure I would try to polish the 7000 series aluminum, as it *could* affect the anodization, Which sensually is protecting against corrosion.

You'd have to completely disassemble the watch. Then you'd have to physically remove the anodization. You'd wind up changing the dimensions of the case. Interesting question - but not happening. If you want shiny, buy SS.
